There will be plenty to do for all the family. We will have canoeing, rock climbing, a static cycling competition, circus skills, tug of war and of course boat trips.The project chosen in 2019 is the construction of a new slipway providing safe access into the Wilts and Berks Canal. Located just north of Beavans Bridge on land being kindly leased to the Wilts and Berks Canal Trust by David Watkins at Westleaze Farm this will allow the Trust to extend their activities working with the local community. The facility will enable local canoe and paddle clubs to enter the water safely and make it possible for a wider range of people to become involved with water under safer conditions.

Watch out for further details on the individuals sports being announced in the coming days on Wichelstowe Project's Twitter account @Wichelstowenews or find on Facebook here
